Match reports are posted on the News and Results page.

The matches are a great way for our girls to meet other girls from neighbouring Counties and play new courses and the Lady Vets’ match provides an opportunity for the girls to learn from some of the more experienced lady golfers in the county...

Eligibility

Girls with an active CONGU handicap are eligible to play in every match, although available girls with the lowest handicaps will be prioritised for selection in matches played against other Counties i.e. all our matches other than the matches against the Lady Vets and the U16 County Boys. 

Even if you think your handicap is too high, you can still be considered to play and represent Gloucestershire Girls, as girls lower than you may not be available or may drop out and we will need to bring in other girls that are available to play.  

Availability

Girls will be emailed to determine their availability for the matches a month before the event.  As soon as responses are received, I will select the team and will publish the team including a couple of reserves.  

If for any reason girls who have indicated they are available to play in matches find themselves unable to do so, then please email me ( aes22@me.com) as soon as possible so that other girls who are available can be brought in to play. 

Selection

The team plus 2 reserves will be selected at least three weeks before the match and the girls selected will be emailed to confirm match details, kit requirements and any post-match meal dietary requirements.  Replies will be needed within 48 hours so the finalised team can be posted on this website before the match date.

There are no match or course fees to pay and the cost of the post-match meals are funded by GGG - please note that team members are expected to stay for the post-match meal.   

Kit

As you are representing Gloucestershire County you will be expected to wear County colours i.e. white polo shirt with Gloucestershire logo, navy or black trousers/shorts/skorts and a burgundy half-zip top, county jumper or county sweatshirt.  Most of you have been involved in County Academy coaching over the years, so should have a white polo shirt and many of you have a burgundy half-zip top or burgundy jumper or sweatshirt.  If you do not have the appropriate kit, then please let us know and we will arrange for you to borrow a polo shirt or burgundy top for the match.

Post-Match

After each match the teams will have a meal together - team players are expected to stay for the post-match meal.  No change of clothes is required but it is advisable to bring spare clothes in case of poor weather.  If you find that you are no longer able to stay for the meal please email me ( aes22@me.com) as soon as possible.  If you let me know the day before or the day of the match then we will ask you to cover the cost of the meal you are missing, as GGG will still be charged for the meal as we have to submit numbers to the golf club's catering team 2 days before the event.

These matches are a good way of making new friends from other counties and gives you the opportunity to play courses which you might not have experienced.  Matches also give you the experience of different golf formats and will prepare you for playing team golf if you have ambitions to represent Gloucestershire County at a more advanced level with the Ladies Squad.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss anything to do with the forthcoming matches, then please get in touch with me by telephone - 079999 70799 or by emailing me: aes22@me.com

I look forward to catching up with you at some of the 2022 matches.

South West Junior Inter Counties Tournament - 7-10 August - CARLYON BAY Golf Club, CORNWALL

2021 was a fantastic year and the year that Gloucestershire WON South West Junior Inter Counties at the Isle of Wedmore GC - this year we head to Cornwall to play at Carlyon Bay GC.

This year the tournament will take place between 7-10 August with a practice round on Sunday, 7 August.  The tournament will start on Monday morning with Counties playing against each other in a round robin matchplay format.  Five matches will be played in each session - 2 foursomes match and 3 singles matches with two team members rested for each session.

We will be taking a squad of 9 girls with 7 girls playing in each match with 2 rested.  There is a handicap maximum of 24 for this tournament but this will not restrict the selection of girls with higher handicaps if they are playing well in the period leading up to the tournament.  The following selection criteria will be used to select the squad.  

Criteria for Selection:

  • four lowest handicapped junior golfers available to play
  • GGG Captain and Vice Captain if not one of the four lowest handicapped golfers
  • plus two-five picks selected by members of the GGG Committee based on current form, feedback from County Coaches and girls’ involvement and commitment to GGG by competing in qualifying GGG competitions up to and including 17/7/22.

The squad will be announced by 19/7/22.
